    I recieved an airline itinerary from Hotwire via e-mail. I need a hard copy of the e-mail. I don't have a printer. When I try to save to my flash drive, it comes out with HTML code mixed with the text. Seems I'm trying to copy a web page.
    How can I get an easy to read copy of the e-mail onto my flash drive, in a format that Kinkos can print?

    Just highlight and copy the text you want and paste it into Notepad. Save it as a txt file to your flash.

    Highlight, copy, and paste to notebook worked. I had already tried that, and although all the info was there, it wasn't "laid out" the same.
    I did it, shortened the sentences, and it's readable, so it'll have to do.
    Thank You.

    If you need to preserve the formatting, try pasting into MS Word or Wordpad.
